The conductor

Rob Shum captured this photo one morning before work at Union Station.

While waiting for the train, he kept noticing the train operator peek his head out of the window to look out for passengers. 

"I immediately gravitated toward the first car where he was," he said. He proceeded to snap a photo. 

Shum made this photo using a Sony A7ii with a 35-millimeter lens on Nov. 12, 2015.
